    Probably just another stock steel one. The Traxxas upgraded ones are hollow alum and will snap even easier, they are more geared for racing to lighten up on the weight. Or you could look around a see if lunsford makes a titanium set.

    I run the red aluminum turnbuckles two years now... Taken some hard hits!! No issues
    I've broken arms and axles and even snapped pivot balls and haven't had to replace one turnbuckle.
    Just my two cents
